Thinking of cancelling my NYU LLM acceptance


baffronz

I just found this http://www.nyulawtaxllm.org/index.html

My degree is going to carry the same credential as possessed people who take an internet course?

Also, I still wonder about the prestige of other NYU LLM admits. See my earlier posts.

I should have applied to Harvard, Columbia and Yale.

From my review of the online program, the students view the recorded classes, study the same materials, take the same tests, etc. as the part-time students. What particularly is your concern about the online component?

It just looks very University of Phoenix, or Drake's school of business. You don't see schools like Harvard, Yale or Columbia with online degrees.

The only positive I see is that the online students can lower the curve, but I'm not doing tax so that won't help me.

If you've ever gone fishing out of the back of a boat before, while it's slowly gliding along, that's called "trolling". The idea is that a slowly moving lure mimicks the speed and motion of a smaller fish, making it more compelling. In fact, when the lure is well made, it will will actually "swim" like the real animal.

Of course, the "fish" has a huge hook sticking out of it, which is the whole point of trolling. So when a fish (you) bites (responds to) the lure (Baffronz), a sharp metal barb impales you through the face, and you're dragged around in agony for a while until you either escape or have your head caved in with a mallet.

The moral of the story, for both fish and board posters, is: don't feed the troll. He is mocking you. His posts are designed to draw you out into genuine, heartfelt responses which are like a kind of delicious popcorn to him, eaten at the expense of your sanity. So play safe out there, people.

Why would I want to move to NY to attend their version of Phoenix school of business?

It seems like NYU's LLM might not be worth the effort. Come on, an internet degree?

The online students will have to watch the same classes, study from the same materials and take the same tests as the in-class students. I would think that would resolve some concern about the degree's validity. The online student will miss out on professor and classmate interaction for sure.

But how selective, and thus valuable, can a program be if it lets anyone with $44,000 get a degree by watching classes on youtube?

I applied to NYU and not Columbia/Harvard/Yale because of its location, but now I wonder.

Definitely a troll. In other thread he says he´s a JD from a Tier 2 law school. Here he says he wish he had applied for admission at CLS, HLS, etc. It can´t be right - no Americans pursue an LLM unless they are willing to specialize in tax. And no tax guy would ever apply to CLS. Shame on you, Troll!...

You're getting an NYU Tax LLM? I hope you have a good internet connection.

According to the NYU Website, "Applicants [of the E-LLM program] will be subject to the same admissions criteria, and then as students they will be held to the same grading standards as full-time and part-time LL.M. students. The primary difference between the part-time program and the E-LLM is that E-LLM students attend lectures by viewing videos via their course websites, and like the students on campus, they must meet attendance requirements.

This sounds legit to me.

That's too bad- what you didn't know is that NYU and Georgetown have offered the program to those at the IRS for years. It's still just as challenging. You just don't have to up and quit your job for a year and leave the house you just bought or pull your kids from school- you have the same smart people working at it.

People from the University of Phoenix or of that caliber probably wouldn't be apply to LLM tax programs... I believe the intergrity will still hold.
